About Words that Travel series:

Afrikult.’s three-part event series Words that Travel aims to showcase the wonderful and rich diversity within the African literary genre. Running throughout 2016, each event focused on particular mediums and traditions of African literature.

In January 2016, focusing on African Poetry, Words that Travel brought together an eclectic cast of young African poets based in London and the UK. Ending with a film screening of ‘Lamb’ (directed by Yared Zeleke).

In June 2016, Words that Travel did something cheeky with African storytelling by showcasing the journey of storytelling from oral, to print to digital. Winding it all down with a film screening of 'Kwaku Ananse’ (directed by Akosua Adoma Owusu)

Back again with our final instalment to the Words that Travel series, think you can guess what’s brewing in our creative pot? Didn’t think so. Word that Travel: Rhythms of Literature captures the synergy between literature and music - the sounds behind words, the words in sounds.

The all-day event will include an African Food Court, Publishers' Market, Performances, Open Lit Space and a LIVE music concert.

More details of the programme and acts will be confirmed soon.
